2006 Pontiac Grand Prix GXP GXP 4dr Sedan (5.3L 8cyl 4A)


Review

Of all the words theres none so fine as these last three, i got mine. We love love love our gxp. Test drove an ss impala, theres no comparison. The suspension and brake differences in the gxp are destined to give this car a reputation head and shoulders above the rest.12 In town 20 highway came as a surprise, but we're still happy with our choice. Comfort,speed, handling, and style are a cut above the rest. It will even outrun last years 5.7Liter gto.


Best Features

303 Hp!!! Big fat springs and sway bars and brakes and tires and the hud.Leather wrapped controls,leather/suede seats,power lumbar support.Performance performance performance!!!!!


Worst Features

4L80e!!!!!!!!!! This engine is easily upgradable to 375 or even 400 hp output, but the tranny is at its limits. Also, the voice activated microphone in the cars satellite telephone/onstar ruins an otherwise very trick feature. Suggest mic control button on shifter.

Review

Granted this is a front wheel drive with 303 HP and paddle shifters on an automatic. But this is one fun car to drive, and on road trips, it is delightful. Even the fuel economy is good. First, it burns regular gas, second it has the fuel saving engine and at road speeds, 4 cylinders shut down and seamlessley start up again when you hit the accelerator. With Stability Control, Magni Steer, and Full Time traction control, Plus the fantastic Heads Up Display, this is a safe car to drive. Just listen to the sound of the Small Block V-8, and you want to ride all day. Gas mileage, I am heavey footed but still getting 25 in Hiway, and 17 to 20 in mixed. That is 400 miles on a tank of gas. Try it!


Best Features

303 V 8; Heads Up Display; Paddle Shifters; Stabilitrack, Magisteer, Great looking Duals, Great looking 18" Wheels; good trunk, On Star with Directions, XM Satellite Radio


Worst Features

utlimately a rear wheel dive or all wheel drive; E - 85 Ethanol V- 8 engine with Displacement of 4 cylindars.

Review

This car is awesome! Who would have thought a car in this price range would be better than most cars on the road. I laugh at the people and their expensive luxury cars with 1/3 less horse power and the same mpg. With this car I can drive like a kid and still drive the kids around. This car is THE complete package for a single/family man (Or woman). Thank you GM for a great car!


Best Features

HUD, power seats, interior trim, on-steering wheel controls, tap shifting, and just about everything else.


Worst Features

Make MP3 CD players standard and change all the honeycomb grills to chrome.

Review

My family has always liked the Pontiac brand. The 303 hp V-8 in the GXP has a sound that reminds me of the 50's and it is great experience to drive. Not as fast as my 1984 Trans-am and not as great as my 2000 Bonneville SSEI, but for the money spent it has it all. I would recommend this car as a family grocery getter for a sports car guy.


Best Features

The DOD v-8 engine and tap shift.


Worst Features

increase the transmission to at least 5 speed

Review

...and not too expensive. Most fun car I've ever driven, and safe too. Holds the road like glue, goes like a bat out of hell, stops on a time. Sorry for the cliches, but they're all true. And my price was below 28 grand for a totally loaded v8 rocketship that is quiet and dependable.
